We met Coldplay backstage at the MTV Awards and showed them the print project for The Killers, suggesting they do the same with Mylo Xyloto. Coldplay agreed, on the basis that the project was run 100% for their favourite charity Kids Company.
With our colleagues at Art4Music we printed 25 very high quality prints of the album art for Mylo Xyloto which each member of the band signed, arranged for the band to paint and sign 3 canvas paintings, and printed 2,000 prints of the album art, all signed by the album artist Paris.
Proud Gallery very kindly gave us their Camden Gallery space to launch this project from November 29th – Dec 2nd, where as well as all of the above works, we will display the 7 meter long original Mylo Xyloto wall and a collection of never before seen images of Coldplay on tour by Miller, their tour photographer.
We got Paul Normansell’s paintings in GQ which The Killers saw and fell in love with and commissioned Paul to paint the cover for Day and Age, which Rolling Stone called Best Album Art of the Year and NME nominated for the same. Our colleagues at Art4Music then sold $250,000 of limited edition prints of the album art, inspiring our current work at creating similar projects.
The oldest surviving music label in the world, and the biggest name in classical music, commissioned Christy Lee Rogers for the album art for their latest release: The All Baroque Box Album Artists suggested that Deutsche Grammphon’s fans would be interested in being able to own limited edition prints from the album, and so a special series of the artworks used by the album have been created and are being sold at the same time as the album is launched.
